No money for fixing our roads, yet Democrat Governor has NO problem finding money for pay increases for himself, teachers, congress and the democrats' little socialist social projects!

Don't expect a democrat to know what PRIORITIES are!!!

We have been lied to for decades. First, it was the lottery money. A portion of the lottery profits were supposed to go for highway repair. Still, no good roads. Then it was the increased cigarette tax. Still no good roads. Even an increase in the sales tax, from 3% to 6%, still no good roads. The state is too busy robbing Peter to pay Paul to get around to fixing the roads.

We waste money on raises for teachers, when it should have been used to fix roads that are destroying our vehicles. The state insist we drive cars that have no rust holes, but then they make us drive on roads that beat them to pieces. We blow tires, bent front end parts, tear out ball joints, tie rod ends and shocks on roads they are responsible for keeping up. Are you happy buying a vehicle that cost $35,000, only to have it turned into a pile of junk by roads they won't fix? They find plenty of money to fund their pet projects, why not money for our roads. Call Charleston. Demand they fix our roads.
